U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., honored at 2017 NAMM Show

Here is Larry Mullen Jr., seen performing part of "Pride (In the Name of Love") at the special Yamaha Music "The Heart of Inspiration" event last night (January 20, 2017) at the 2017 NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. The band performing with Larry included one of the world's most celebrated bass players, Nathan East, as well as singer-guitarist Butch Walker. Larry was honored with Yamaha Music's Lifetime Achievement in Musical Excellence Award, and joined a great group of musicians on stage to perform a short-but-inspired set that included "Desire," "Angel of Harlem," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "Pride (In The Name Of Love)," the last song which Larry dedicated to the late Martin Luther King Jr.
